Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Suzannah teaches at one of the very few racially mixed schools in apartheid-era South Africa. One of her more appealing students is the intensely Afrocentric black activist named Tsepo, who asserts that the white European culture has not contributed anything of value to the world. While Suzannah has been teaching at school, her very susceptible husband Felipe has been falling under the spell of a femme fatale, a radical terrorist of the white-rule movement, and soon Felipe is arrested along with his female mentor for violent crimes. However, the woman terrorist has some political strings to pull that Felipe doesn't, and he is soon left alone to stand trial on the charges against him. Meanwhile, Tsepo has also been hauled into prison. Suzannah only learns of her husband's perfidy when his arrest is reported on television, in this earnest drama about the complexities of South African life not so very long ago.
